Autumn Spice Digital Kit

  • Cut two 8″ x 1″ pieces of the design that you just printed, ensuring the cut has the leaves flowing from top to bottom. (Obviously, if you have the original card stock you won’t need MDS to print a copy.)
  • Lay one piece of the design onto the scallop side of the Tasteful Trim die and run through the Big Shot. (Insure the card stock is oriented correctly so the scallops will be on the right side.)
  • Lay the second piece of the design onto the scallop side of the Tasteful Trim die and run through the Big Shot. (Insure the card stock is oriented correctly so the scallops will be on the left side.)
  • Attach one of the scallop pieces onto the right side of the 8″ square piece of More Mustard Card Stock, and the other on the left. (Insure correct orientation.)
  • Punch a small hole in the two corners at the top of the card stock.
  • Insert a piece of Early Espresso Baker’s Twine through the holes, allowing the twine to hand down slightly. Tie knots in the ends of the twine.
  • Using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, punch out one set of pennants each from the printed Autumn Spice Card Stock, Cajun Craze Card Stock, Old Olive Card Stock, and Early Espresso Card Stock.

  • Insert a brad (your choice).
  • Wrap a small piece of Early Espresso Baker’s Twine around each brad and tie into a bow.
  • Adhere each pennant along the Early Espresso Baker’s Twine that was inserted at the top.
  • Cut a photo mat to fit the size of your photo and adhere to the page.
  • Cover with a matching ink the leaf stamp from the Day of Gratitude stamp set (see picture), stamp the image onto Very Vanilla Card Stock, and cut out the leaf.
  • Repeat for a second leaf.
  • Using dimensionals, adhere the leaves onto the two corners of the photo mat.

My Digital Studio Scrapbook Page

It has been a while since I posted a scrapbook page that I developed with My Digital Studio; therefore, I made one and am sharing it with you today.  After using the Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio, I think I will not return to paper scrapbook pages as the software is easy to use and you can create pages a lot faster than when using paper.
The theme of this scrapbook page is my spring flowers.  I planted a Butterfly Bush this Spring, and it truly is attracting butterflies; some that I’ve not seen often.

 
 
The background paper is from the Twitterpated Kit Digital Download (129332), Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Twitterpated – 7 design.  The Opacity of this design was set at 62, which means to degree to which the paper is opaque.
 
Can you see what the second layer is?  Look closely and you’ll see it is a picture of a Hibiscus flower.  I enlarged the picture to cover the background paper and set the Opacity at 42.  It is a picture of the same Hibiscus plant, but a different flower than that in the right photo box.
 
The other pictures are of my Peach Cobbler Butterfly Bush, which is attracting beautiful butterflies.
 
If you’ve not tried the My Digital Studio Express Trail for 30 days FREE, I strongly encourage you to do so.
 
I hope you enjoy the scrapbook page.
 
 
God’s Blessings!
